CSUN holds challenges for students to show off their best work. Challenges are created with a theme such as Art, Volunteer Work, or Academic Success to best showcase a variety of CSUN talent. View the Challenges and Prizes page for more information and to view rules and guidelines.
Matador Moments is an annual Portfolium Challenge for all CSUN students to take part in. We asked our Matadors - When did you feel like you belonged at CSUN for the first time?

Portfolium is also available to all faculty and staff. To access Portfolium, visit https://csun.portfolium.com/ and log in with your CSUN user ID and password. You will be asked a few questions to customize your account.
